If you’ve ever shopped at ALDI, you know that it’s the place to go for insanely good grocery deals. Fans swear by the store’s exclusive brands for their quality and affordability; these are the tasty, you need to get your hands on.
It’s time to throw a party, because you won’t need to drop a ton of cash to put together a killer cheeseboard. The store’s Priano Italian cheeses like Parmesan and Asiago have undergone blind taste tests and passed with flying colors, plus you can snag an 8-oz. wedge for $3.79.
In addition to frozen fruits and veggies, you can find affordable frozen meals and sides that make it easy to throw together an impressive dinner. Microwavable items like Season’s Choice Fiesta Quinoa or Asian Couscous Blend go for $2.99 per package, and they’re fan favorites.
Make sure to check out your store’s weekly fresh meat offers on Wednesdays to snag quality cuts like filet mignon and ribeye on the cheap. There are also a ton of options when it comes to items like burgers and sausages — Parkview Premium beer bratwurst and beef and blue cheese sausage go for $2.99 for four.
Dried Fruit and Nuts
Compared to most stores, ALDI’s raw nuts and dried fruits are a total steal. Stock up on bags of almonds, pistachios, cashews and pecans, or cranberries, apricots and banana chips — all items that can cost an absurd amount if you don’t know where to shop.
Pick up store-brand sandwich loaves or next-level breads, like brioche or pretzel hamburger buns (under $2 per package), to step up your carb game.
The store’s liveGfree brand is a favorite of shoppers with certain dietary needs. Get items like granola, baking mixes, pasta, bread ,and wraps at a decent price without feeling like you’re eating cardboard. Even real pasta lovers can get down with their brown rice and quinoa pasta.
Baby and Toddler Foods
If you’ve got hungry little ones, you can never have enough healthy snacks around the house. ALDI’s Little Journey line includes baby food pouches, toddler-friendly puffs and yogurt bites, which are much cheaper than big brands like Gerber.
Broken Clouds Pinot Noir came in at No. 22 on Wine Enthusiast’s list of the 100 Best Buys. The Sonoma County vino goes for about $12 — a bit steeper than Two-Buck Chuck, but also miles above when it comes to taste.
ALDI stocks a wide variety of Belmont-brand ice creams that come in creative flavors like Brookie Dough — vanilla and chocolate ice cream, packed with brownie and cookie mix-ins. It comes in packaging that looks much like Ben & Jerry’s, but their version comes at about half the price.
When you’re craving a snack, you won’t find brand names like Pirate’s Booty in the aisles, but these savory puffs won the title of “Product of the Year” in 2017, so they must be on to something.
